Interlibrary Loan

 

 

 

What is Interlibrary Loan?

How does it help me?

How do I use it?

 

This October, the Southworth Library Learning Commons wants you to give Interlibrary Loan (ILL) a try!

 

What is Interlibrary Loan? ILL is a free service available to SUNY Canton students, faculty, and staff. At your request, ILL will borrow books, articles, DVDs and other library materials from other libraries around the country and make them available to you for checkout.

 

How does it help me? If ANYlibrary ANYwhere has ANYthing you want, it is available to you through ILL. We don’t care if it’s for a class assignment or your own personal enjoyment—we’ll request a copy and get it to you as soon as possible! Use this to your advantage by getting the perfect resources for that research paper, or get that graphic novel you’ve wanted for some weekend reading!

 

How do I use it? Go here to log in and for more information.
